What I'm Reading -
Since we're getting into the gift-giving season, I'm beginning to think about what I own. A couple months ago, I started theLife-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo but never finished it. However, I recently found this awesome manga version which covers all the general ideas but in comic-book form (always a plus). Inspired by Japanese Shintoism, she counsels a method of decluttering that focuses on keeping what you love (ie. spark joy), while also assuaging the guilt of discarding items. Though the book is definitely borderline-lethal on the cutesiness, her methods really do seem to work. And, as all things good and profitable, she's about to have her own TV show.
